WATER POWER

The project, which integrates and completes the buildings of the ex Pansa paper factory, is made of three architectural elements: the wall, the housing units and the small exposition building, linked together with a public path.
 
The wall is technologically and morphologically similar to the existing walls on the Valle dei Mulini and functions not only as a retaining wall above ground, but as an infrastructural container, gaining thickness underground to host the bar, housing cellars, large underground parking garage and the public paths.
 
From a functional point of view, the project consists mainly of a public path that allows a gradual transition between the levels; linking the ex paper factory, valle street, parking garage, refreshment area, small museum building and upper pedestrian walkway.
 
Water, a vital resource and central element of the Valle dei Mulini, has an invisible omnipresence under the streets of the region, and will be exposed and paired with the public pedestrian passage to emphasize its importance to the valley and its inhabitants.
 
A sequence of small three storey housing units overlook the water, and forms a small canyon by following the contours of the wall without touching it; creating a new artificial landscape.
